As long as you don’t claim the work as your own… I don’t think too many authors would be against you taking screenshots…
Thanks.. but I need a 100% answer. is it 100% ok or not? Is there 1% chance I might get in trouble for copyright infringement ?

My original post was directed towards the OP…

To answer yours… no, if your linking back to Themeforest you don’t need to purchase a license to display them on your site… 100%... other wise the API would be useless…

Thanks :D

OK! Guys sorry to renege on what I’ve previously said, however, we’ve had a rethink on this internally and we feel that it should be a bit easier for our affiliates and you guys to help promote items!

If your powers are being used for good, there shouldn’t really be an issue. So no license purchase required unless the author specifically requests you buy one. Contact Support and ref this thread if you already bought some licenses and want a refund.

Thanks! Jordan

Technically speaking Envato have no right to say you can do what you want with screen shots as they do not own the work and is not their copyright (if they disagree then their “get out clause” of our work being illegally distributed can’t stand) – so my advise is to contact the author who created and owns the file – ask them for permission – unless the author doesn’t want promotion, I foresee zero issues for you.

Honestly, if it means another sale for them, they have no reason to decline.
